IT guy (Detail Boy) was already in bed when I was in the middle of my post,
fortunately all was fixed today.
I always thought my bookcases were the perfect candidate for a makeover with a patterned background. When I accidentally came across this print I knew it would work with my neutrals.
You guessed it Ange and Lori, my 'wallpaper' is actually wrapping paper I spied in
the Target Dollar Bins, a marketing genius whoever thought of those!
My favorite part of the makeover is that it's easily removable when I'm in the mood
to change the pattern, and of course, the major impact for the $6 price tag.
I still loved the neutral bookcase scheme that I used last spring,
but I edited it a bit so the patterned paper could take center stage for now.
That cute little Norfolk pine was a gift at Christmas,
I removed the ornaments and red container, and transplanted it into a clay pot.
You just can't beat the texture of nature.
I used 3 rolls of wrapping paper @ $1 each,
1 roll of Scotch Removable Poster tape $3 at Hobby Lobby (with coupon).
I tried removable double-sided scotch tape, but it didn't hold, so be sure to use Poster tape.
Before cutting I unrolled the wrap and re-rolled it in the opposite direction to
loosen the tight roll. It will make it easier if you don't have to battle the paper rolling up
and the tape sticking where it's not supposed to...ask me how I know!
I mentioned my bookcases could use some pattern when I styled them for
Christmas back in 2011....here it is 2013 and I'm on it! :)
Happy weekend, friends!
and knock something off your 2013 to-do list!
